RESS is hoping to deliver GWO training in Russia from mid-2019
Renewable Energy School of Skill (RESS) has signalled its intention to launch a facility in Russia next year, following the creation of its first russian language curriculum.
The company's South-East Europe branch in Constanta, Romania, began delivering GWO courses in 2015. It has since received a Basic Technical Training certificate and has now translated its GWO portfolio into Russian.
"We recently reached an important milestone of 2000 technicians trained. This is the first step to our plans to start a new GWO training facility in Russia, mid 2019," a spokesperson for RESS explained."
Russia is currently in the early stages of developing its onshore wind sector. According to reports, the country's first commercial scale wind farm, a 35MW facility in Ulyanovsk, about 680km south-east of Moscow, was commissioned in January 2018.

Old versions of GWO standards are available for three months, but our survey discovered 30% of training providers could be waiting up to 12 weeks to implement the new version.
Basic Safety Training (BST) version 11 and Basic Technical Training (BTT) version 4 will no longer be valid from 1st July. Use of unpublished versions by GWO training providers may be considered a non-compliance.
As Taiwan prepares to develop 5.5 GW of offshore wind by 2025, a delegation from the country's leading science and technology university visited GWO on a fact finding mission.
